In the second post of this year I’m showing you an upcycle design lamp that uses old wine bottles. Usually glass gets recycled after it’s been thrown away in a glass container. But there’s always a better way than recycling and that’s of course upcycling. There are some amazing ideas on upcycleDZINE that also use bottles. A few examples are: Utrem Lux by DeGross, Wine Bottle Lamp by John Liang and Quercus by Max Ashford.
Glass is a material that we easily take for granted, but we couldn’t do without. The material has many different uses like practical, technological, and decorative usage. Glass reflects light in a beautiful way and is transparent. Besides being transparent it’s, although brittle, also very durable. Just look at those very old stained glass windows.
Mannequin hand draws attention
So you can imagine after reading this intro that I’m attracted to upcycle design that uses bottles. And this time even more so because another object is upcycled in the design. The wall lamp [sconce] is a ‘Mannequin Hand Lamp‘ designed by EuNa Designs, an Etsy shop founded by Eusebio Navarro, based in Xàtiva, Spanje.
“I think the lighting in a room, at home or in a business is very important.”
The upcycle design lamp he created immediately produced a smile on my face. I’ve said it many times before, the best designs have a wow and/or fun factor. And that fun factor can certainly be found in many upcycle design pieces.

Eusebio created an amazing wall lamp by placing the bottle in a steady wooden mannequin hand just as if you would hold a bottle in your own hand. All this results in a fun and unique hand made lamp that will certainly draw attention.
